hair and makeup update

Tomorrow I begin my makeup classes with Jena Perry at my salon! This is very exciting, and I can’t wait. This first class is a freelance class, full of information really, and a little hands on time at the end to work on a model. I will tell you more after the class, as I really haven’t got much to talk about right now.

I am sort of missing styling hair for photo shoots. I got really burned out on shoots when all I was doing was pinup; it gets very redundant when you are doing victory rolls, finger waves and puffy Betty bangs every shoot.   I had a few shoots that stepped outside of the pinup image, but it was the exception. I have been very inspired by the Anthropologie catalog and also the amazing photographic skills of Shanni and Ashley, they always have the most interesting shoots, and Ashley in particular has an aesthetic that has me itching to style effortless waves, use adorable headbands, and create looks that are soft and feminine to the max. Like THESE:

I am very happy to announce that Hair by Adrian will soon be Hair AND Makeup by Adrian! I have recently signed myself up for amazing makeup classes that my salon owner offers for April and May, which will allow me to offer both hair styling and makeup application for my brides starting this summer! The makeup courses are intensive, and will give me the tools, techniques, and confidence to pamper my brides to the max and offer more services through the same vendor.

I think I need to come up with a new business name, as just hair will no longer be applicable. Any suggestions?

I will need models for each class, and if a day of sitting in a chair being pampered and having makeup applied for free, while learning your own tips and tricks of the trade in the process, let me know! Dates and classes I need models for are
